Norepinephrine, also known as noradrenaline, is the chemical cousin of Dopamine. It is important in sexual arousal and sexual memory and is similar to Epinephrine (or Adrenaline). It is found throughout the brain and can act as a stress hormone, directing response to such things as flight, fear, anxiety, panic, excitement and sexual arousal. It also aids in increasing our heart rate, triggers the release of sugars for energy, and to move blood from our core to our muscles. 

Maintaining Alertness

It is involved in maintaining our alertness and waking up from sleep. Norepinephrine is the hormone that initiates arousal in our body and creates a sense of energy. It is also the basis for creating memories in the brain, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and what creates clear images that seem to not be able to be erased.
